IPod 8 GB silver will not turn on

It played all day yesterday in the docking station on my desk. I pulled it out overnite. I put it back in the docking station (iHome) and it will not turn on or do anything. There is power to the docking station. What can I do?

    Yesterday I plugged the brand new Ipod 8gb in via the supplied USB port. Screen came up and it was charging. Disconnected it a few hours later. Today I plugged it back in and nothing happened. I tried an ihome and nothing happened. It was just dead. Any ideas??

I went to the Apple site and found these instructions. They worked for me.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Ipod touch will not switch on fully charged left on docking staton all day swiched off with docking station


how many times have you charged it
Ipod batteries have a lifespan so they can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing

if it will turn on with a charger either your battery is completely dead or the battery connections are loose or faulty

hope this helps

IPOD SHUFFLE 1 GB SECOND GENERATION DOESN'T SEEM TO BE SYNCING PROPERLY AS SONGS JUMP TO THE NEXT SONG AFTER PLAYING A PERCENTAGE OF A SONG. tHIS PROBLEM SEEMS SOMEWHAT RANDOM BUT WITH HIGH FREQUENCY....


You will need to wipe it clean then put all your songs back into it. Try using a different computer and then put iTunes on it and that should erase it all and then just load your Ipod back up with your music. What happens is that if the Ipod can't read the song, it stutters, tries to play that part, and sometimes skips songs.

Some of the older docking stations don't recognize the next gen iPods.

Docking station problems


I have the same problem. The screen is frozen ? I put my ipod on and press play and it freezes. I found the solution though. Let it go dead and then hold the play button. Its a long process but it plays just fine on my docking station after that. If it happens again then you may have to repeat the same process.

Ipod nano 8gb Mp3


Hi there,

It might be possible the you left your iPod playing overnight when you stopped using it. The batteries might be drained already and will need some time in the dock for it to be charged for the batteries to warm up and start charging again. Please ensure that the connections are not loose also.

Ipod nano blinks


I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
